Boil water advisory lifted in Gonzales
UPDATED: City officials say testing is complete and the boil advisory has been lifted as of Wednesday morning.
GONZALES - It will be at least 24 hours before a boil advisory is lifted for the city of Gonzales.
Officials with the city issued the advisory after discovering problems with some of the water pumps Tuesday morning.
Though the pressure system has been restored, the advisory won't be lifted until later, Tuesday.
Ascension Parish school officials say the advisory impacts G.W. Carver Primary, Gonzales Primary, Pecan Grove Primary, Gonzales Middle, East Ascension High School and Early College Option at RPCC.
However, Central Primary and Central Middle schools are under a different water system.
Ascension Parish School official, Jackie Tisdell says, "Although this will be a slight inconvenience, we do not expect it to have a major impact on our school day. We are in close contact with the City of Gonzales as they work to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible."
Tisdell went on to ensure parents that impacted schools are making appropriate adjustments by revisiting breakfast and lunch menu items, obtaining bottled water and making sure hand sanitizer is available.
Currently the Department of Health is waiting on the results of a sample that will not show results for 24 hours. The test findings of the sample are expected at some point Wednesday.
